Compassionate Friends

"The peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:7 

 Compassionate Friends of Kaukauna Catholic Parishes

~Holy Cross and St. Katharine Drexel are now working together~

Bereavement Outreach Ministry
Compassionate Friends of Kaukauna Catholic Parishes send out our prayers, heartfelt greetings, ongoing sympathy and support to those who mourn the loss of a loved one.

Following a funeral, a team member “adopts” each family for the first year by:

  • Praying for the family
  • Sending inspirational cards to the family throughout the year
  • Assisting with the All Souls Day Prayer Service on November 2nd
  • Assisting with the annual widows/widowers gathering in spring

Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Them
After a parish member passes away, his or her life is commemorated with a cross bearing their name. The cross will be placed on a special remembrance wall at either Holy Cross or St. Katharine Drexel – St. Mary Church. We ask for your prayers for the repose of their souls and peace for their grieving family and friends.
